Grant Williams, former Tennessee star, delivers career game in Game 7 for Boston Celtics
Grant Williams, a bona fide Vol For Life, turned in a memorable Game 7 to help lift the Boston Celtics to the Eastern Conference finals with a win over the Milwaukee Bucks.
Williams scored a career-high 27 points on 7-of-18 shooting from 3-point land, as he led the team in scoring the first time in his career. At times it appeared the Bucks dared Williams to shoot, and he was more than willing to let the ball fly, and turned in a game already described as The Grant Williams Game.
Williams and Boston dismissed the defending NBA champions, 109-81, at a raucous TD Garden, as they advanced to face the East top seed Miami Heat in the conference finals, which begin on Tuesday.
